Valentine's Lollipop Wrapper Tutorial

The last couple of years I have made my girls V-Day goodies for their classmates. This year I am ahead of the game and completed my 2nd graders this evening!!

I saw a cute idea taught by Veronica Durfey I had to try. It was so easy to make. Here is the finished product using non traditional colors. I had tons of CTMH Dotty For You (retired) paper so I figured I would put it to good use!!

Here is a video followed by a picture tutorial....

Choose the card stock or patterned paper you are going to use and cut it at 6 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches. I decided to only use patterned paper; however you can can use card stock and mat it with patterned paper. If you choose to do that cut the patterned paper at 2 1/4 x 2 inches. I used only patterned paper since the kids will most likely not take in the design but go for the lollipop lol

Score your card stock at 2 1/2 and 4 inches. 

I cut out the tag I wanted to use from the Holiday Tag stamp set using the CTMH Artiste cart. The cut is from pg 33, Accent 4 with the dial set at 1 3/4 inches. The heart is from the Whoo's Your Valentine (retired special) stamp set. I stamped each cut with the corresponding ink colors to match the patterned paper. 

 Take your scored piece of card stock and place double sided tape on one end. 

 Bend the scored piece of card stock on the score lines. 

 I folded up the plastic around the lollipop (there was too much plastic causing the lollipop plastic to hit the score line) and placed it up against the card stock on the side with the double sided tape. 

 I than folded the other end (without double sided tape) connecting it edge to edge with the doubled sided tape edge. 

 Pinch the two edges together making sure it is secure. (You can move the lollipop stick to the center if it is not straight)

 Take the stamped tag and add a piece of 3-D foam tape. 

 Adhere the tag to the front of the wrapper and add a piece of ribbon tied in a knot around the lollipop stick. (or in a bow if you are good at bows)

Here you have it a finished lollipop wrapper!! So very cute!!
